TIGERS MANAGER JIM LEYLAND: On the game: “Both [Aaron] Harang and [Doug] Fister were good. We caught a break in the late innings when they couldn’t find the strike zone a couple times, we ended up getting a couple add-on runs. Of course Miguel [Cabrera] had a huge night and Victor [Martinez] had a big night, Jhonny Peralta; good game. [Austin] Jackson got it started like he has been a lot of the year for us and right off the bat we scored early. We didn’t score a lot early, but we scored. Fister was good.” Austin Jackson’s at-bat in the 8 inning: “Terrific at-bat. We probably caught a break in that inning but you take that. Overall I thought we played well and we pitched well. [Al] Alburquerque was very good tonight, and [Joaquin] Benoit as well.” On more chances to break the game open: “That’s all part of it. You’re not going to do that all the time; you know the other side’s pretty good too, so it’s not that easy. You get concerned about that stuff every once in a while but overall I thought we hit very well. Like I said we took advantage of a couple breaks and we shut them down good.”
